Behind the sticker
All BSB shocks are built to the same standard whether it is a 10 series Hobby Stock shock or a 62 series Late Model shock. We design and build all the parts in house on state of the art CNC machines, using high quality standards such as SPC and ISO to produce the highest quality on the market today. Our one of a kind piston - shims stack design delivers a unique performance value that is not only seen but felt in the race car. We are testing more this year than we ever have, to ensure that we are bringing the best piece to market. This is not just a shock but a start to something better. Here are some reason why this is a better shock, peel back the sticker and compare what is behind it.
1. Honed ID Tubing
Honed ID tubing allows the shock to hold its pressure levels 10x's longer than DOM tubing, and the shock doesn't lose pressure as you use it. BSB is the only shock company in this market that uses honed tube, even compared to a much higher dollar shock.
2.Surface Treated ID Tubing
BSB performs a surface treatment on the ID of the tube that decreases the drag and increases the seal between wearband and tube. This gives the shock a better seal and a longer life. It also ensures that you can feel what is going on when you are on the race track.
3. Low Drag Seal Head
This gives the shock less drag between the seal and the shaft allowing for better feel and performance. It also is lined in the tube with the main bore this is often not done on a standard shock because it slows down production.
4. Bronze Teflon Wearband
Teflon coated bronze wearband increase wear resistance and sealing to the tube while decreasing drag. Allows for better seal and more feel.
5. BSB Blue Shock Oil
Specially designed by, well lets just say a bunch of really smart guys with big degrees did it for us so you can have the best oil ever. BSB oil is designed with extremely high viscosity indexes over 350, low pour points and reduced friction capability, this high performance fluid shows a considerably reduced rate of viscosity change when subjected to elevated temperatures.
Custom Shock Service
Why buy a shock from a shock company and then have to send it to someone to fix it the way it should be. BSB is not a production line shock company that is mass producing shocks , we are a custom shock builder, building shocks to meet your needs. When we build a shock there is a lot of things that change the out come of that shock, things such as shim hardness, wearband thickness, piston thickness, tube diameter, stack configuration and bleed sizes, all these things make a difference in the pressure the shock makes. As these things change so does the out come of the shock , this is why you can have a shock that works great but when you buy the next one it is different. This is why when you buy a shock from BSB it will be the same every time.
